The Obama revolving door continues to spin, with another top policy aide cashing out to become, in Obama's words, "a Wall Street fat cat."

Mona Sutphen, Obama's deputy chief of staff, was one of more than 50 ex-lobbyists in senior Obama administration jobs. Now, she's a macro analyst at the Swiss Bank UBS, according to a company press release.

If you're keeping track of top Obama aides going to big banks, Sutphen follows:

  • White House Counsel Greg Craig, who went to Goldman Sachs
  • Budget Director Peter Orszag, who went to Citigroup
  • Labor Department aide Oscar Ramirez who represents Bank of America at the Podesta Group
